Mark puts forth several business benefits that IAM intelligence delivers. The top one for Veripyr's customers is how IAI makes it possible to "Turn Data into Insight, and Insight into Action".
"Turn Data into Insight, and Insight into Action. ... the amount of relevant Identity and Access data is immense. That raw data does little good unless we can effectively organize and analyze such data so effective business decisions can be made and intelligent action can be taken as a result." - Mark Dixon, Discovering IdentityBenefits from Automation
Mark also lists a number of benefits from an automated IAI process. Veriphyr customers would agree with all of these benefits. Of course, one of the benefits they like the most is that Veriphyr delivers IAI as a Service (IAIaaS) so there is no hardware or no onsite software.
- Repeatability. Manual methods may vary as different people become involved at different parts of the process, causing variabiltiy in results from cycle to cycle.
- Auditability. Manual methods are more difficult to audit, because of the variability in the human part of the process.
- Cost control. The costs of manual methods often exceed automated processes, because the labor content of the process recurs in every cycle. Automated methods can reduce these costs.
